Nudist beach people : not as ugly as you fear, but certainly not as nice-looking as you hope.

What do people over 50 use for birth control?

Nudity.

From the survey:


The Speedo-style suit proved a globally approved beachwear option. Overall, 65% of beachgoers worldwide reported finding bathing suits like the Speedo to be "acceptable."

This figure was highest in France ( 91%) and Italy (87%);Japanese (29%) and Norwegian (34%) beachgoers were the least accepting of a bathing suit such as Speedo ; andU.S. beachgoers were split - 52% considered a bathing suit such as the Speedo acceptable beach wear and 48% did not.
 You never see Speedo briefs anymore in North America.

I would love to go to a nude beach but I'm a big fat turd and they'd probably organize to push me back into the water.  I both envy and pity my fellow fatties who feel no shame.

I've never felt the urge to go naked in public. I don't see that as a negative

There's a great nude beach by me. It depends on who you are and what you're in to, but they can be lots of fun.

5% seems low, if you include late-night, drunk, sandy, forgettable sex with an annoying squeaky voiced girl with a hair-lip.  Meh, guess it wasn't that forgettable.

Meh, It's all where you go. I've seen slinky wood nymphs at waterfalls in the mountains all my life.

jigger: There are no legal nude beaches within 1000 miles of me.


the only legal nude "beach" within a reasonable driving distance of me is hippie hollow in the austin area. from what i've seen and heard about that spot, it's pretty much a lot of rocks you have to hike/climb on to get to the water. doesn't sound like my kind of place.

i do live within 20 miles of 2 very nice nudist facilities, and about 30 - 40 miles from one i've yet to try.

I've been naked in the Susquehanna, does that count?
 
2013-07-22 08:15:24 AM
I have always figured that if someone saw me naked, they are just going to have to live with it. Counseling may be required.

I have to be at the gym in 26 minutes.

I accidentally stumbled across a nudist beach when I was in New South Wales.  The beach was completely empty and I was throwing rocks into the water until a truck pulled up and a older couple got out with absolutely nothing on and gave me a nice, big, "Hello!"

I told them I was overdressed and left to go retch elsewhere.

I'll stick to private nudity at my desk.

Went to Daytona Beach a few years back.. because my GF kept wanting to stop here and there, the trip took longer and longer and we stopped at Crescent Beach and stayed the night (great room on the beach). We went for a late evening walk and the beach was almost deserted. In one area that was really vacant (well, APPEARED to be), up pops a naked, perfect 10 chic out of a hole they had dug down in the sand and off she runs (oh, how they bounced) towards the water.... then the guy with her jumps up and tells her to stop it, get back her, etc... and goes running after her (he has trunks on).  I stood there with my mouth open, then remembered my GF was with me and quickly composed myself, looked over (expecting to get a smartass remark, then biatched at for the evening) only to see her with her mouth open and staring.
Yeah... that damned hot.

As a ginger I'd blind people with the reflected sunlight and probably just end up with a sunburned junk.

i upped my meds-up yours: I'm an American who has been nekkid at the beach. The beach was in Copenhagen. And yes, the younger folks were more...conservative.


It seems that way, yeah. I'm 37. When I was 20 or younger, almost every girl at the beach went topless. Now, it seems only middle-aged women do it. The young girls won't go for it.

I wonder why.
 
2013-07-22 08:18:11 AM
When I was 15 I snuck onto the nude beach that's about a mile away form my house.  It was early in the morning and there were only a handful of people there, all in their 20s, all (for a 15 year old) pretty good looking.  I waited there for hours until I suddenly realized that the younger crowd had left and the senior citizens were all walking around minus cloths.  I have never been back

Be careful, you might get a sunburn just thinking about going outside.

I don't go because I don't want to have to put sun tan lotion on my junk or ass. The trunks are practical rather than cosmetic.

I actually grew up having my own private beach. Never once went skinny dipping. Totally should have since it would've perfect to cool off in the summer without AC. I think I never did because my family is way too squeamish for something as natural as nudity.

Went to southern France last month with good intentions to at least take my top off but it was way too cold.

I was on a beach in italy in may where several gals were topless. I undid my bra and took off my shirt while laying on my stomach. My husbad freaked out and couldnt believe it (even though nothing was showing!) and then I was like "what? I would do this on an american beach?!". I just don't understand the big deal.

/living in germany now and hope to go to some nude beaches!

Hey, let's all err on the side of caution here.  If youre smokin' and you know it, go ahead. As for me, I'm in that "looks pretty good in longer shorts and maybe a sleeveless shirt" range.  If I were to go full monte, the whole thing goes to hell.  My keeping my cloths on is best for everyone.

what town/city are you in/near in germany? i was stationed at ramstein for more than 4 years.
also was in aviano, italy, for several months in 1999. went to beaches on the adriatic and all the beaches i went to had topless women, but didn't see nude beaches there. nice beaches, but hardly any waves. wish now that the one woman who went with us had gone topless...but she was in a 1-piece so it wouldn't have worked anyway

I've been a somewhat practitionner of nude beaches (and no, you don't want to see me naked), but the great thing about nude beach, is how it desexualizes nudity, and how people don't care about you being naked. It feels great to tan and swim naked, and because everyone is, nobody cares about you showing your naughty part.

Well, there was this one-time where a fit, 70-yo gay man with shaved genitals and a Hermes scarf over his tracheotomy hole, was doing warming-up exercises up and down the beach, and seemed pretty intent on being where I'd be when I got out of the water, but all other experiences were pretty much of a"yeah, this is nice" nature.

I've been to a nude beach once. If my one experience is representative of the norm you would not have to worry. The majority of people there were middle-aged fatties.

70-yo, it's a guess, really. Gay ? It's a gaydar kind of thing, the fact that he only looked at men, and that he seemed to be an escapee from the nearby gay nude beach (in France, "family" nude beaches are usually right beside "gay" nude beaches, and usually one-tenth the side. You do NOT want to wander in the dunes).

My wife and I were stationed at Spangdahlem AB, Germany for 5 years (8/91-12/96), during which I was sent TDY to San Vito, Italy for 4 months (1/95-4/95). Didn't get a chance to explore any beaches other than the ones around the base, which were pretty bad. No nudity there at all.

We took a week long vacation to Costa Brava, Spain, and I can tell you there were lots of topless women at the beach, and they were hot. I think many were tourists like us, but I was honestly surprised at the quality of the women going topless. Great memories.

We went to a nude beach in California in '91 called Pirates Cove near San Luis Obispo. It was a cool experience. After a while talking to the regulars, you start to forget you are all nude. We were both 21 at the time. I would do it again.
